Words in the Park

Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Location: North East Corner of Victoria Park, Regina

Lunches in Victoria Park are more interesting in the summer! The Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild is proud to present the 8th annual Words in the Park program. This program provides the downtown lunch crowd a chance to experience an eclectic mix of authors and storytellers, between 12 pm and 1 pm, in the north-east corner of Victoria Park. The authors represent a variety of genres including: playwrights, children’s authors, poets, spoken word, and non-fiction. Whether they are just emerging or already established, a mix of authors from across Saskatchewan will be on hand each Wednesday to read selections of their work. The Regina Public Library offers an alternative venue in the Film Theatre of their Central Branch, in case of inclement weather. See the performers for our upcoming Words in the Park event below.
